I remember the first time I played this game: I worked as a Sales Assistant in the local computer game shop. It was an independent shop and the manager used to spend all the profits on booze at the end of every day. The b’stard still owes me £27.00! Anyway, back to the story … I was really impressed with what I saw and I was a little upset to see that ZZAP64 magazine only game it 72%. I think it’s a fab game – though a little tough in places – and well worth playing over and over again.
Thanks to Inge for sending in the game ending …
Okay, here’s what you do: move Jack towards the Pygmy …
… and you finally reach The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Looks like Inge used an infinite lives and energy cheat, and also a FANTASTIC walkthrough map produced by Richard Mace (Richard’s map can be downloaded from HERE).
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: Jack walks into the final room to see a load of pygmies and a grey version of himself. There is a strange sound effect in the background and that’s it.
Vinny: Hmmm … this ending is visually telling a story, but because I haven’t read the game instructions, I am not too sure as to what’s going on. It’s very quick, and really could have done with a great ending tune from Ben, along with a proper explanation to the ending.
FINAL SAY: Don’t blink; you’ll miss it!

G.E. RATING: 3 / 10

    After Jack’s misdemeanors in the first game the government decide to deport Jack, however he bails from the plane and ends up in the jungle.

    Essentially the end is saying that thelocals are worshipping an idol that looks like Jack, so completeing the various tasks and gaining entrace to the temple finally puts Jack at the top of the pile King of the jungle type thing.

    I did enjoy this one myself, there was a type in listing we used for unlimited lives and a map printed in Zzap which got us through it. You don’t have to do every last thing to complete the game, there are around 8 tasks and you only need to do around 5, I remember doing Onion to makelaughing Hyena cry, mouse let loose beside elephant and throwing grease on a guys rope that is dangling over water with crocs in it. There are also a few different places where you will find Hyenas, Elephants and so on so could pick routes through the jungle that you are more comfortable with.
